Zoom in showing true color, then changing to daytime thermal, then nighttime thermal, using mountain top, Landsat, ATLAS thermal, land use, and clouds/convection data Note: A flyby of Atlanta showing visible imagery, daytime thermal data, and nighttime thermal data taken by an airborne ATLAS instrument on May 11 and 12, 1997. This imagery is surrounded by Landsat Thematic Mapper data taken on June 27, 1998. The flyby is followed by a timelapse of land use in the region from 1973 to 1997 from Landsat data and a sequence of GOES imagery showing cloud and thunderstorm formation over the Atlanta heat island. Animator: Greg Shirah (NASA/GSFC), Tom Bridgman (GST). Scientist: Dale Quattrochi (NASA/MSFC). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: ATLAS, GOES, Landsat, Landsat-5/TM.
